About

Aisling D'Art
My hand-drawn icon from around 1998.

This site is about mixed media art, including art journaling, scrapbooking, drawing, painting, coloring pages, decorating, torn paper collage, digital art, and…

Well, you get the idea.  Lots of creativity.

I’m Aisling D’Art, and this website – Aisling.net – has been online since the 1990s. (It started at GeoCities’ Soho community.) I’ve written hundreds of articles here, mostly how-to ideas and examples. All of them are about making art, especially art for journals.

For 2020, I decided to reorganize this site and relaunch it. It’s taken me awhile to decide what to do, how to prioritize what’s here, and so on.

Then, on my (September) birthday, I realized: As the slogan says, just do it.

So, expect changes at this site. Short-term, I’m shuffling a bunch of articles, including several from earlier in 2020, when I considered focusing on my coloring books & other printed projects.

Those articles will return in the coming weeks. With links to more freebies, of course.

I’m also integrating articles from ArtistsJournals.com, because… well, I’m still not sure why I decided to spin-off that topic. I mean, art journaling has been central to most of my personal art.

In general, this site has always been my main digital “home,” and I kind of love it that I can return here and – within seconds – I’m smiling. A lot.

I’m kind of excited about re-energizing this site for you to enjoy even more. I hope you’ll enjoy it here, too.
